that hitting the debt ceiling, oh, that won't hurt a bit, who cares? republican congressman mo brooks of alabama told the washington post this week that on the contrary, all credit rating should be improved by not raising the debt ceiling, which is like saying you're looking forward to how that sledge hammer is going to improve your dental work. another congressman says after a catastrophic default and financial crisis the government can just move some money around to fix things for awhile. "that wouldn't work for just a few days, that would work for a few years" adding it's an arrogant attitude to take. republican congressman tim wahlberg of michigan in agreement, he told the washington post it's time to "hold the line," but which he means we should default, just go for it. republican allen west of florida says president obama is fearmongering on the debt ceiling that it's nothing to be afraid of. republicans are not alone on this. >> this is a misnomer that i believe the president and the treasury secretary have been trying to pass aufz on the american people, and it's this, that if
